PARIS DESIGN WEEK – YOHJI YAMAMOTO / JEAN NOUVEL – BY ALICE DEVELEY

Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,

this is the meeting between space and material. In the shop of Yohji Yamamoto, an ethereal room resplendent with light in Paris, Jean Nouvel has imagined a minimalist and a functional collection to espouse the garments of the artist. Discreet but modern, black but luminous, wardrobes and shelves follow natural curves of clothes. "It's all about proportions". Optimizing the area of the store with its straight lines and letting everyone free to personalize the material, Jean Nouvel's furniture is simple, convenient but most of all unique. With a timeless collection combining art and fashion, the architect has created the perfect objects to accompany and magnify the work of Yohji Yamamoto.

Best,

Alice
